My hair is falling out 3x the rate it used to. The mouth ulcers are back too. I know that is from not being able to take the evoxac. The hair thing is kind of depressing.

 I am sorry redrose I understand how you feel about the hair shedding. I have gone through that as well. I hated losing my hair. I know you are feeling frustrated right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

thanks. the worst of it is that hair is everywhere- in my food, covering my clothes and hubby's clothes, on the bedding, in the drains, basically anywhere I have been or anything I touch. I hate it. I just hope it stops soon.

Oh Redrose,
 
I sooooo know what the hair loss thing is like. I lost half my hair this past summer and fall from a medication allergy. My poor old body went into shock and I started dropping hair like no body's business.  Like you said, it was everywhere!  It stopped falling out about 6 weeks ago, and is growing back in.. I have inch long pieces that stick straight up all over my head, LOL.  It's pretty funny actually.
 
But I wanted to encourage you that it's probably your pregnancy hormones doing this?  I'm just thinking out loud.  I have never been pregnant, so I don't know by experience, just from what others I know have had. 
 
I hope it ends soon for you too.  Just keep lots of "liquid plumber" handy!

Oh redrose, bless your heart! I try to keep mine tied up on top of my head. It's awful, I noticed my tub is slowing down the drain now and I have to pull all the hair out of my brush at least 4 times before I got it brushed the other day. I also have the sores all over my mouth. especially the roo of my mouth. Hopfully after you have the baby your hair will start growing back. I know when I was was preg my hair was just awful all the time and I wasn't even sick.
